The Things That Need Change

Location

Why do we assume the future will be brighter?
Or to reach for the stars a little bit higher?
When contentment is over looked like the shadows that follows before me,
Greed is at a peak and there's no such thing as dignity
And if your not at a lawful age, then your thoughts have no matter,
How did the world ever climb so high up upon this ladder?
Please STOP condemning the thoughts that I think
Reason is lost within the eye of a blink.
Fighting and anger is all I've ever known,
Forgetting our morals is always the prone.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
